You would really only need to watch the first twenty minutes of the video because once you start adding the mop strings, that’s pretty much the rest of the DIY, but just in case, you can watch the replay of the Facebook LIVE video where I showed my crafty crew how to make a DIY Mop String Macrame Decor!

How to Make DIY Mop String Macrame Decor

Remove the strings from your Dollar Tree mop head and set the strings to the side. It might be helpful to cut the plastic piece that secures the strings together.

Then, unscrew the handle from your Dollar Tree plunger. I went over my handle with a piece of sandpaper to smooth it out. 

To stain the plunger handle you’ll need a few wet wipes and brown paint. I used Dixie Belle Coffee Bean Chalk Paint, but you can use whichever brown paint you already have on file.

Use the wet wipe to spread the brown paint across the entire surface of your plunger handle, and make sure to get the paint in the grooves that screwed into the plunger.

Allow your handle to dry so the mop strings don’t absorb the wet paint when you go to attach them later. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.

Take two mop strings and bend them in half. Place the curved section of the mop strings over the top of the plunger handle, wrap the ends around the handle and push them through the curved part. This secures the strings to your handle!

The finishing touches

Repeat that over and over until the entire handle is covered. You can hot glue the end mop strings to keep them all from slipping off the Dollar Tree plunger handle. 

Once you have all the mop strings attached, it’s time to start adding the wooden beads! Randomly place them in high and low places across your mop strings. You can use hot glue to secure them in place on the strings.

  1. Amber I made this macrame project after watching the replay of your video. The strings on mine look shorter than yours and I’m not sure why. Did you tie strings together to.get that length?
